    I don't have any pics at the moment but their not that bad after one becomes accustomed to it.
    They have a 3 spd trans with high and low range giving 6 forward gears and 2 reverse gears that's all controlled by one shifter on the left side of the operator.

    Type in Oliver shift pattern plate R4839 and it'll show you what what the shift pattern looks like.

    Some more pics of what there is. I get to look at it on Saturday. I am hoping the buyer of my land will come through like he says he would and I can buy it on Saturday.

    The tractor will be mine. I wont have the money until mid week. Yet the owner will hold it for me as he essentially "has one in his hands". I will post some better pictures of it Saturday. The history he has told me is, he bought it off of a local about 4 years ago when he was building the present home he lives in. The prior owner wanted something construction colored and took off all the Oliver green. That prior owner also supposedly went through the engine and fully rebuilt it less than 200 hours ago. New clutch and other stuff. Supposedly went all the way through it. Sounds like a great deal for me.

    I can hardly wait to bring it home. It will be after Monday as that is when the buyer of our land will finally cough up the $4500 he has agreed to pay. Until then the wife will have to carefully navigate the badly rutted driveway in one spot as I dont have anything to correct the driveway yet. Hopefully this will be the last tractor I ever need to replace. Grin, that doesnt mean I wont collect others! LOL

    I went to buy it Monday night. We never discussed payment. So when I whipped out a check for the correct amount, he declared that he wanted cash. No problem, he gets to cash the check later this morning. The plow blade is in the back of my truck. I had him put the forks on before I arrived. Since I wont be using the plow on the tractor I will use the mount as a base for a quick release mount. They are slick and you should try it to understand why a person with a loader should have one.

    I cant seem to get the present owner whom doesnt know a thing about tractors to understand he doesnt need 1500 rpm to do everything. Maybe tonight I will get him to idle it when loading it.

    I did try to operate the tractor. Alas the seat is adjusted supposedly to the rear. Yet it doesnt go back enough for my frame. So the first thing I will have to do when it comes home is to remount the seat. I felt it was odd that the way the seat bolts to the tractor is a angle iron that is bolted to the spring behind the toplink. There are no holes in the casting that I can see where a person would normally bolt a replacement seat. Not that it is a difficulty for a fabricator like myself. Just found it odd.

    Woe is the man that annoys the present owner. Found out the gentleman is a police man for a neighboring town. Very nice fellow. He was surprised at how much I knew the laws in the state of Maine. He thought he had been illegal driving a farm tractor down a public road. I told him what article it was written under, he just grinned.

    Well it is home. No more pushy sales pressure from the seller whom kept his options open by scheduling other interested parties for the following weekend next. Alas I cant get it off the trailer as the seat is too far forward.
